Wednesdays from 24th April - 29th May 2019

A 6-week after-school sewing course for children aged 8-12.

Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

Because they’re having such a great time, they don’t actually realise how many valuable sewing skills they are learning which will stay with them for life.

Children must be able to place their feet flat on the floor
when sitting in a chair 45cm in height or they will not be able to operate the foot control of the machine.

Projects include bunting, tote bag and applique cushion. Sewing machines and all materials provided.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kids After-school Sewing Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
